2010 release, the long-awaited sophomore album from the British singer/songwriter. The Sea showcases a remarkable step forwards in the musical evolution of one of the most acclaimed artists of recent times. Corinne started work on the songs for her second album at the end of 2007, following a whirlwind two years which saw her go from unknown singer/songwriter to worldwide multi-platinum, award-winning artist with a string of Grammy and Brits nominations to her name. Recorded mainly in Leeds and Manchester and co-produced by Corinne Bailey Rae with two separate producers, Steve Brown and Steve Chrisanthou, The Sea is a career-defining album. Working with a new band of musicians, most of whom she has known for many years, she has produced an extraordinarily intimate album, full of a lyrical potency that is wonderfully descriptive yet honest, open and deeply evocative of her personal journey.

"Are You Here"- has some really crushing lyrics, she really loved that man. I thought this song would set the tone for the album, but it ended up being so wonderfully varied ;)
"I'd Do It All Again"- sounds like something from her debut album, and that's totally cool with me. This is probably my FAVORITE on the album. I love the faint male vocals at the end "someone to looooove"..unexpected and soulful.
"Paris Nights/New York Mornings"-despite it's upbeat sound, the lyrics are a bit sad to me. I imagine its her revisiting old memories that she shared with her late husband. The overly-emotional water sign in me tears up a bit at the thought...I'm such a crybaby haha.
"Closer"-sexy and groovy. This is something I'll blast while cleaning my house cooking dinner, or driving around with my windows rolled down on warm evenings.
"The Sea"- a nice ending to a lovely album. I find myself replaying this one quite a bit.
This is a reallllly chill album and I think it's beautiful that Corrine was so open to sharing her music after such a time of grief. We need more talented singer-songwriters like her. Keep your pretty little head up, Corrine!
I have an extensive CD collection but in recent years I've found very few CDs that I need to purchase. I've been downloading individual songs rather than entire CDs because most artists seem to have just one or two good tracks on them.
I loved Corinne's first CD, but I simply adore this new one. I play it continuously - no need to skip any tracks. My favorite song is "I Would Like to Call It Beauty."
To the naysayers: listen and listen again - it just gets better and better.
